JEWELLERY & ACCESSORIES
We have a huge range of body jewellery ranging from belly bars, basic stainless steel, plugs and flesh tunnels, stretching tapers and nose studs. New designs are introduced every few months to keep our range fresh and cutting edge, visit our studio shop or our online shop.
Urban Piercings was established in 1998 as one of the few studios dedicated solely to body piercing and the sale of body jewellery. Since then, Urban Piercings has maintained a high level of professionalism, cleanliness, aftercare support, expertise and customer service, resulting in our well earned reputation as one of the forerunners in the industry. While Pete has bowed out from behind the needle to run our internet business, our two piercers: Lian and Belle now handle all the needle work. As well as the whole spectrum of body piercings, we also offer dermal anchors, skin divers and genital piercings, all performed by experienced, knowledgeable piercers.
Urban Piercings’ story
One of the first piercings studios in the country to open its doors to the public was Hardware in Reading, opened in the early 90’s by Ruth. This was at a time when body piercing was still a very underground practice, most piercings being performed by either tattoo artists, or at home.
Meanwhile, in 1993, a fashion accessory shop called Strawberry Fields starts offering lobe piercings, which soon progresses to body piercings in 1995. It's owner, Pete, getting deeper involved in the body piercing industry. Forward a couple of years to ‘96 and Ruth joins the staff of Strawberry Fields, offering more specialist piercings and bringing their two different client bases together.
Shortly after this; Pete decides to open what would become the respected, professional hub in Reading for all things body piercing. . .
We offer full aftercare information and products, as well as our staff being available for checkups and any queries. All piercings are fitted with either surgical grade, UK manufactured titanium body jewellery (except for the anatometal surface bars, those come from the States), or flexible P.T.F.E. Our jewellery and equipment are cleaned, run through ultrasonics and then autoclaved. Our needles are all single use and disposed of safely. We are also fully registered with Reading Borough Council, if you want to contact them directly please call the Consumer Protection Team on 0800 626 540.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

What a lovely place. !!!
I was a nervous wreck and literally only went for the "daith" to see if it might have an impact on my headaches and migraines.
Firstly Belle , Well what can I say. She was amazing , so reassuring and patient and I have to say the piercing for me was almost painless. Just like a strong pinch.
BUT secondly. Within 5 /10 mins of having the piercing my pressure in my head had gone ( I was on day 10 of mix between migraine and tension headaches). I'm at home probably around 6 hrs later and still feel good.
Panicking slightly over keeping it clean (awkward place) but what an experience.
Thank you so so much Urban piercings.
Also for Rosemary for the recommendation
